Survival of the Maji

DO you remember that story, the Gift of the Maji where a woman sells her hair to buy a pocket watch for her husband but he sells his watch chain to buy her combs for her hair?

I have passed the uncomfortable stage in my finances and am now looking for a second job. Perhaps I would not be feeling so uncomfortable if my roommate would pay her rent. Either way, something has to change with me and I am willing to suffer for a bit to be more comfortable. We have all heard this tune before.

So I went to Starbucks. Hiring freeze. Fuck. I'm still going to apply though.

Plan B. See Craigslist.

And I remembered the story. And how crappy I look.

And I thought, oh god, not that.

Rats. They've already taken down the listing. It must have been a good one! I love prowling Craiglist just to see the sights.

Damn. It offered me $200 to cut my hair. Short. emphasis on short. To be a hair model. I just couldn't do it and then have to listen to myself complain about how much I miss my hair.

For beautiful's sake, I'll give you a loan. Don't cut your hair.... or your boobs. Don't mess with what you have been gifted by some holy deity!!
